If the agitator is slipping, you may have worn out agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. These are small plastic clips that act in the manner of a clutch for the agitator. The following link explains:

The link also explains how to remove the agitator. If you require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replacing the agitator dogs in a Kenmore 80 series washer

Hi, Remove the cap on the agitator and then remove the inside cover. There is a 7/16" bolt under the inside cover. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Seperate the 2 pieces of the agitator and replace the dogs. You might have to use a flat blade screw drive and punch out the 4 tabs around the bolt hole in the agitator if this applies.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
